Thank you for registering your team to join us for our 2021 Miles for Melanoma Los Angeles event on Saturday, January 22, 2022! We look forward to having you and your team join us as we raise funds to eradicate melanoma through continued research, education and advocacy efforts. Your role as Team Captain is an integral part of not only the Miles for Melanoma events but the overall mission of the Melanoma Research Foundation.

With the support of your team and the Los Angeles community, we can exceed our 2021 fundraising goal and make a life-changing impact among those with melanoma and their families. As the captain of a team, you will be the primary point of contact for your team members. It is your job to create the team, invite people to join and keep members motivated, inspired and informed of the team’s progress. You will be responsible for making sure that every member is registered and ready to help your team raise funds.

Miles for Melanoma Team Captains:


RAISE FUNDS: Inform your team on the importance of FUNdraising. There is only a $10 registration fee to participate in the Virtual Miles for Melanoma LA event and this year ONLY everyone gets a UPF 50+Coolibar shirt. In addition, we have some really great fundraising incentives and encourage you and your team members to take advantage of this awesome opportunity.

EDUCATE: Provide your team members with a background on the Miles for Melanoma event, the mission of the MRF and the importance of staying sun safe while engaging in socially distanced activities.

SET GOALS: Come up with a FUNdraising goal as a team! Try to increase your goal from last year or if this is your first year, aim for an attainable team goal of $500. You can always increase after you get started! Encourage each team member to set their own individual goals and share the tools from our event Participant Center or our 5 Easy Ways to Raise $500 guide below to help them succeed.

ORGANIZE: A team captain should keep track of each team member’s progress and offer suggestions as to various ways for their team members to reach their goals. Also, be sure to communicate all vent day details so your team members can be prepared for a fun Miles for Melanoma experience!

HAVE FUN: Celebrate when your team hits your Step and Fundraising Goals! You can host virtual Happy Hour with your team to celebrate, BBQ’s or movie nights, the virtual possibilities are endless! Make sure to join the MRF for the Virtual Celebration Ceremony on Saturday, January 22nd.
